Secondary Transition

Secondary Transition is the process of preparing students for adult life after they leave high school and can be thought of as a bridge between school programs and the opportunities of adult life, including higher education or training, employment, independent living and community participation.  Transition planning provides opportunities for students with disabilities to experience positive post-school outcomes, such as:

  • higher graduation rate
  • lower dropout rates
  • increased enrollment in colleges and universities
  • higher rates of competitive employment
  • increase levels of independence

Regional Support Model

The Secondary Transition Team provides support to Administrative Units (AUs) through a regional model.  Please reference the Regional Specialist Map for Transition Specialist contact information as well as training and technical assistance opportunities that are available.
